of the deal on the debt ceiling last year. >> it came out of mitch mcconnell's office. harry reid went along with it. mcconnell voted for it. john mccain who is a big critic of the defense part of the sequester, it was he voted for it. paul ryan voted for it. so you know, i'm not saying democrats are blameless here or don't deserve some of the responsibility but the idea that republicans are washing their hands and saying this is a white house ploy is completely wrong. >> bill: i was at the white house friday when president obama came into the east room and made a very short speech. very clear about what his plan is and what he wanted. here's the president with one challenge to members of congress. >> obama: i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges. but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. >> bill: what does he mean by that? >> balanced. he's saying first of all it's not just spending cuts. it has to be revenues as well. second, he's rejecting the j

-- the senate -- mitch mcconnell doesn't need to be in the room probably. but you want nancy pelosi in the room and put together a package that everyone will jump on. you'll see the house vote to lower taxes on the upper class folks and middle class folks, but when it goes to the senate you know it won't matter. >> that's right. now the problem is all we got last year was symbolic votes. >> right. >> this is again where you and i think the president gains by waiting. the pressure is not on him right now. the republicans will crack and the president needs to understand he has got more leverage, he can just sit there and go -- >> jennifer: but any problem for the president and frankly with boehner who is willing to wait as well, is the business community. they will be freaking out -- >> yeah look at the market today down 300 points -- >> jennifer: what is that about? >> i don't know. but i think ceo's came out and said revenue has to be part of this -- >> jennifer: this is why the president needs to use his bully pulpit to explain to the american people. >> exact

don't you remind me, mitch mcconnell. >> our top political priority should be to deny president obama a second term. >> cenk: welcome to the middle of the ring. did that happen for you, mitch? did it happen for you? republicans, oh no, there is obama! there is obama! not denied. you're denied. then finally my friends at fox news. >> it's going to be very close which is 51-48, a two point to two and a half point race, and i think romney gets 279 to 286. >> i'm sticking with you. i think it's a two-point race, too. >> cenk: well, guess what, you were all wrong. oh no! fox got it all wrong. this was their nightmare. obama landing right

chief ghoul himself mitch mcconnell: >> bill: no, no, loser, you don't get to talk about failures when you were a gigantic failure. you lost seats in your party. shh. let me bring in the rest of the crew here. anna, you know as i just said that i've never seen any of the conservatives say we're outnumbered, lost the country. this is something new isn't it? >> it is new. i think that it's great that they've realized that this conservative idealogy isn't winning anymore. we talked about republicans abscessed with redefining rape. these kind of topics are not popular with the american public. i don't know why they continually wanted to talk about it. we passed so many different ballot initiatives that are so liberal. for instance, two states right now have legalized marijuana for recreational use. three more legalized gay marriage. that's a big deal. >> bill: we're on the march. i never thought we'd see that in the war on drugs. they're going to lose on that. and they lost on gay marriage. they're losing on everything, michael. what they do, what do rush limbaugh and bill o'reilly do, say

, mitch mcconnell, they don't give a damn about. don't give a rat's ass about. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." >>for every discouraged voter, there are ten angry ones taking action. trickle down does not work. in romney's world, cars get the elevator and the workers get the shaft. that is a whole bunch of bunk. the powerful may steal an election, but they can't steal democracy. >> bill: it is thursday, november 8, two days after president obama's decisive victory. our decisive victory. four more years for the obama agenda. great to see you today. take your calls at 1-866-55-press. and peter just before we get to -- back to the national picture, just reading during the break from the latest edition of california political week or cal-peak, this speaks to what we were talking about. how the republican party has lost its edge particularly among latinos, women young voters. in california, my state california republican party used to have 63.2% of voter registration. registered voters in california. republicans. today,

learned our lesson in 2010 and we have his back this time. >> stephanie: mcconnell and boehner they are so smug i just want to take something and throw it at the tv -- >> stephanie: no don't do that. kara in alabama. >> caller: hi, oh, god, i just wanted to echo what the caller just said, absolutely. absolutely, because all of those long lines -- if we have not learned our lesson all of those long lines will have been all for not. waiting in line eight hours to vote is just unacceptable. >> yes. the grandson of jim crow by the way. >> caller: right but we did this to ourselves. so you didn't just blame it all on the republicans, it was the pissed off liberals and progressives who did this. >> stephanie: yeah and the president said we have got to do something about this. there are all kinds of creative ways to suppress the vote. they lost in every courtroom in every state with these voter suppression laws but it easy to go, oh that was a clerical error. >> i said to cenk on election night that video of the guy who's touch screen ballot went from obama to romn

. >> i guess -- oh, you've always asked that question except to mitch mcconnell. >> he missed the question. joan what happened there was luke russert got to ask a question during speaker -- former speaker pelosi's press conference yesterday with all of the democratic-elected officials on stage. and he asked about her age and about the fact that she's hanging on to the leadership position and isn't that depriving someone younger of getting it. and former speaker pelosi astutely pointed out that he would never ask that question of mitch mcconnell and then she said this. >> let's, for a moment, honor it as a legitimate question. although it is quite offensive but you don't realize that, i guess. the fact is -- the fact is that everything that i have done in my almost -- i guess decade now of leadership is to elect younger and newer people to the congress. >> john: that's a smackdown luke russert. i mean that's just -- come on. you don't! when have you ever heard someone bring up age -- even john mccain. no one e

that mitch mcconnell is acting defiant and boner is like -- okay. >> he is like a whipped puppy. >> stephanie: we have not endorsed the failures and excesses of the president's first term. >> says the guy who is the minority leader in the senate. >> stephanie: yeah. republican insiders focused on the approaching problem. the republican -- >> where are the white people at? >> stephanie: exactly. the party must find a way to temper talk about immigration without infuriating conservatives -- you can't just say if you fix the tone you fix the problem, you have to figure out what kind of policy issues we have. it's not just their tone it's the way they talk about people their policies -- i really think the president stopping the deportation, the dream act all of that stuff, it's because he thinks it is the right thing to do. many republicans say first they must find ways to appeal to women. >> by stop being such a-holes would be a start. >> for one. >> stephanie: and jim, i have a very, very special edition -- [♪ "jeopardy" theme music ♪] >> stephanie: wh
